10/4 stow grey / yellow
The 10/4 stow grey/yellow cord is designed with the latest technology so as to meet the UL 62 requirements while performing a wide range of tasks in many fields. This makes it suitable, efficient and economical for numerous projects. It has very distinct features, including the different colors that it comes in. Different people have different color preferences and this has always been at the back of the manufacture’s mind. They do understand that on top of improving the quality of their products, their customers also have preferences in terms of color and other factors. The 10/4 stow cable also comes in both yellow and grey.
The 10/4 stow grey/yellow cord is made of copper that has been gradually heated and cooled to give it the required texture and hardness. This makes the cable very strong and durable, making it cost efficient. One can use it for a very long time without having to have their budget include purchasing another cord over and over again. The cords are designed for use in activities that require high flexibility. Highly flexible cables do not easily break and they often allow for easy portability. They are very easy to fold therefore occupying less space in compact areas. Without this feature, one would have to purchase a number of cords for activities that are carried out in different locations and could incur many costs along with the hassle of moving the cords.
The 10/4 stow grey/yellow cord is insulated with polyvinyl chloride (PVC) per UL 62. The PVC is also used in the outer jacket of the cable. PVC is a chemical compound that gives the cord distinct characteristics, including resistance to abrasion, resistance to extreme weather conditions, and also insulation. The cord will not tear easily, even if it is exposed to very high friction as a result of the nature of work it is used in. It can withstand very high voltages, up to 600V. It can also withstand extreme temperatures, ranging between -20 ºC to 60 ºC. They can also be used in dry and damp areas. The cords have 4 conductors in each cable with an insulation thickness of 0.045 inches, size AWG 10 and the diameter of the complete cable is 0.715 inches. The weight per 1000ft Total (Lbs) is 326 with 20 Amps.
These features enable the 10/4 stow cords to have application in very wide areas. For instance, it can be used in lighting and sound equipment, such as in the field of entertainment. The entertainment industry involves regular movement to different locations, therefore using a cable that is easy to fold and reliable makes it efficient and dependable. The cords can also be used in hospitals and home equipment. Also, washing machines have been powered using these cords since they are strong and withstanding high voltages that are required by these machines.
The cord is also made to be oil resistant, as contact with oils would destroy the molecular structure of the cord, therefore end up damaging it. This feature is important to help reduce losses as a result of less durability of the cords.
